the president will have to do something on the fiscal front to deal with the deficit, and i don't think he can get around ed, i don't think he wants to get around at. it will be how he approaches it will make a difference. >> charles, there are rumors circulating that republicans in the house will let the sequester said in and put him right back in the white house to do wit to -- deal with it. a plan is jack lew's a signal from obama that he will pursue the course he pursued in the first term, to spend as much as he needs to establish the entitlement state and tax at a higher level to pay for it. jack lew is exactly the kind of liberal historically who has been his warrior on the front in negotiating on this. there is no indication that lew would go in any other direction, and it is clear to me that by this series of agreements obama has made, unlike added a first term more features people of independent stature, he has gone from a team of rivals to team of underlings. >> well, that is one nomination, but the nomination of former srepublican senator chuck hagel to head the department of defens
that the neocons hold for us? >> i don't know if it's that stated, but it certainly is underlining a lot of what we're hearing about hagel now. a lot of the media attention has been on some of the past statements involving the jewish lobby as he called it, involving the gay ambassador to luxembourg, but those are sort of side shows. what this comes down to is the future of obama's foreign policy. chuck hagel in many ways represents the clearest break yet by this administration from the george w. bush era foreign policy. keep in mind the president continued a lot of these bush era programs. we haven't really had a substantive comprehensive conversation about what went wrong in iraq. chuck hagel's nomination represents a clean break. i think that's very scary for a lot of these neocons. >> let me go to peter. i have always respected the way your brain works. you think a lot, which is a good thing for a writer to do occasionally is to think. you think and you really change your mind, which is very refreshing. and i think you've wrestled with these issues of the middle east, and i guess the question is

standoff, the gunman and three people lay dead inside the home. the truth is we don't have the time to list all the shootings across this country over the last 24 hours. but we do have time to mention that just two days before the president's inauguration a coalition of gun rights activists are calling for a gun appreciation day. even before the task force has made a single recommendation, this coalition wants to organize against what they say is the president's post-sandy hook assault on gun rights. this is why the silence of those children killed at sandy hook elementary school must continue to speak loudly until action is taken in relation to gun safety and gun violence across this nation. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> the folks that brought you the iraq war. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the folks who quack for iraq have a knack for bad ideas. they pushed us into war ten years ago, they made their case with lies and half truths and flimflam. we had to get revenge fo
investigation into the funding of planned parenthood. since the senate is controlled by democrats, we don't expect that body to cooperate in any investigation. we are asking members of the house to take a hard look at what could be, what could be a gross violation of federal law. we will let you know what congress people step up and agree to do that. and that's the memo. top story tonight opposing point of view with us christina page author of the book how the pro-choice movement saved america? so where am i going wrong here, ms. page? >> you are going wrong on accounting. you are going wrong the -- your assumptions of where this money is being spent. planned parenthood is a healthcare provider. a leading healthcare provider and provides primary healthcare services to millions of americans last year. they provided 11 million services to americans. prevention services. 90% of the services that planned parenthood offers is prevention. that means 41% are std treatment and prevention. >> bill: testing for to see if you have and things like that and that's worthy. >> 32% is contraception. so r
of people up here. i have always argued some of the dumb things they do because i don't think it's in the interest of israel. i just don't think it's spamart for israel. some say chuck hagel owes an apology for that. after all, not all jews support what israel does. does hagel have to explain himself, david? >> well, i don't want to parse a brief phrase that a nominee has used. many people use unfortunate phrases and go on to be excellent nominees. the problem with chuck hagel is not a phrase. the problem with chuck hagel is a consistent attitude. the next secretary of defense will be -- will likely to have deal with two basic types of issues at the top of the inbox. the first is managing a defense build down, if the sequester goes into effect, a very dramatic defense build down. you need someone with excellent military management experience, which chuck hagen does not have. i think you were too kind to him in the opening presentation. the second challenge will be the challenge of iran. we are probably coming to the extreme decision point where iran in the four years ahead. and c
will do at the confirmation hearing. i don't believe there's moral equivalency between the two sides which is the suggestion of that article. >> he believe there is moral equivalency? >> you will have to ask him what he believes. my judgment and knowledge of chuck chuck and my suggestions with chuck would suggest that he wants to see both sides come to the table and find a solution. he spores the peace process. but he is upper most, a very, very strong supporter of the state of israel. he has voted for billions and billions of dollars of aid to israel. i have no question when it comes to challenges that have anything to do with putting israel at risk, chuck hagel will be on israel's side. remember, he is working for a president. and he will follow the poll so i was that president. >> the renew deed bait about iraq is also occurring. the "new york times" writes about that today. in his memoir, he writes something very poignant about the iraq war. he writes, "it all comes down to the fact we were asked to vote on a res lation based on half-truths, untruths and winful thinking. i voted for th
. this is something that don rumsfeld tried and failed to do. it's something that bob gates tried and failed to do in any serious way. and now, given the budget pressures, this is going to be the moment for performance. >> rose: a couple of points, i guess. rumsfeld would argue that we had a big war came along and bob gates would argue that in the end he did cut it somewhat. >> somewhat. but if you look at the total national security budget, charlie, which would be not just the pentagon but also the intelligence agencies, homeland security, it's basically doubled since the 9/11 attacks. >> rose: and weapons systems you don't really need in the judgment of many people other than those people who represent the districts where they're located. >> leftovers from the cold war and, remember, the president himself came in supported by chuck hagel on this point with the thought that there was a moment here to really build down on the nuclear force. and so far they have not been able to do that except some modest cuts when they passed the start treaty with russia early in the president's time. >> rose: tal
. >> i don't want that trash walking around. >> cenk: president obama nominate hagel and brennan today, the secretary of defense and c.i.a. i love the republicans pretending that they care about gay people in order to oppose hagel. and hagel they don't think he's strung enough on israel and iran and iraq. >> what do you believe? what are you able to support? what do you think? why are you elected if you want a safe job go sell shoes. >> cenk: we have four advisers. on the show tonight to talk about that, and then finally we have a fun and interesting story about the world's poorest president. he's from uruguay. >> i'm not a poor president. >> cenk: i got to be honest with you, he's a poor president especially when it comes to monday. we'll explain. go time. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> chuck hagel for secretary of defense. >> chuck hagel will have a fight for confirmation. >> the leader our troops deserve. >> the most antagonistic, it is very difficult to imagine the circumstance in which i could support in confirmation. >> yes, he is a serious candidate. >> chuck haig settle not a respo
's very close to this president. i do not believe there will be a tough time for brennan. i don't know. john, what do you think? >> john, add to that the drone issue. there are a lot of people who have said that he was a big part of shaping the policy on shaping the unmanned aircraft and some people called them a tool for extra judicial killings. >> there will be -- i think best way to summarize it is this way. the hague el confirmation will be more personal. the brennan confirmation is more of a policy discussion. was the administration flat footed in benghazi? reactive or proactive with the arab spring? you make the point about the drones. this is very controversial. there are some democrat that is don't like it, sort of ron paul, rand paul libertarians that don't like it and facing sharp policy questions on that. the administration's policy will be when americans are wary of projecting military force overseas, the drone tactics have been largely effective. doesn't mean there won't be questions of using them going forward but i think the brennan confirmation process is about policy s
of alabama. no, i'm dead serious. i'm not really that shocked. >> you don't want to end up like brent musburger. >> no, it's the opposite of brent musburger, and i'm dead serious. if you go to ole miss, if you go to the university of alabama, if you go to auburn, even. i guess you yankees aren't used to -- >> we don't have that in the north. >> no, i'm dead serious. i mean, you look -- you know what? seriously, i looked at that picture and said, she's pretty. and you know what she looks like? she looks like a lot of other really pretty sorority girls at university of alabama or ole miss or auburn or i don't know. do you guys have them up at swanee? >> absolutely. >> i mean sororities. >> yeah. >> do you have sororities? >> absolutely. >> it's just not all that. get over it, move on. >> he doesn't get out a lot. >> you've got a dynasty. >> this is a different kind of s.e.c. dynasty. >> yeah. but we're used to it. we're used to it. >> this is not going to go on for nine minutes. >> you know what is going to go on for nine minutes, though? seriously, seriously, aig. >> aig. >> you know,
, coming back after the first of the year. keep writing and don't be discouraged if we don't look at your letter. we're looking at all of them. your time will come. again, thank you for watching us tonight. i'm bill o'reilly, please remember the spin stops right here. we're definitely looking out for you. >> . >> welcome to hannity, and tonight we're learning that the white house will be the site after critical showdown over gun control later this week. now, the face-off between vice-president joe biden and his gun control task force and the national rifle association is slated to take place on thursday. now, n.r.a. officials confirmed to fox news had the organization accepted an invitation to attend the closed door session, it's expected that the group will discuss a variety of options how to curb gun violence and issues related to mental health and entertainment and video game industry are reportedly going to be put on the table. there is no question that limiting your second amendment rights is priority one for sheriff joe and his team. now, these breaking developments come to us just
these matters resolved? look, the biggest problem confronting the country is not taxes, it's spending. we don't have this problem because we tax too little. we have it because we spend too much. we now have a $16.4 trillion national debt, as big as our economy. that alone makes us look a lot like greece. this administration has driven spending from 21% of our economy up to almost 25% of our economy. we've got to stop using the credit card, and any opportunity we have to engage the other side in a discussion about quitting the spending spree, we're going to engage in. >> and the question is, how do you follow through on your strategy, and, you know, a lot of your allies are worried about that prospect. "the wall street journal" editorial page said "the political result would be far worse if republicans start this fight only to cave in the end. you can't take a hostage you aren't prepared to shoot. do the two gop leaders have a better strategy today than they did in 2011?" and i guess you're hearing that phrase more and more now, shoot the hostage. are you prepared to do it, to see the country
. how would he advise this president on how to overcome the threat? >> first of all, i don't think that is a correct assessment. chuck hagel said nothing is off the table but one of the things he believes in is prospects for negotiation. we have been ready to negotiate under the right set of circumstances with iran for the last several years with our friends and allies so, force is the table but i'm glad we have people like the president and like chuck hagel who will be very careful when you start throwing around the terms -- >> he says it's not feasible. do you agree it is not feasible. >> what is the not feasible? >> military option? >>> military option is always feasible, you tell me what the option is. are we going to blow up tehran or go after facilities that might be well protected or hidden? and i think bob gates, the previous secretary of defense, who pointed out the difficulty of striking these places is a real one. so any military option is feasible in terms of dropping bombs but what is the result of that military attack? with respect to the revolutionary guard, he has r
to focus on first. >> well, i don't know that he's going to have much choice. he only has 16 months to governor before everyone starts running for president and no one is listening again. i think he does see some room for compromise over on pennsylvania avenue on that issue. but gun control has been just dropping it's ahead. the country is crying out about that more than anything else. i think he'll wind up doing both of those at once and that will be a tough road. >> john: gun control is an issue that democrats say people have hit the snooze button on since the 90s. can they get gun control through this congress. >> to be honest with you, i don't know what he can get through this congress. i think he can chip away a little bit at it, but i do think that if--i mean, if he tries to do--i think what vice president biden said today that's going to be one of the interesting things about the second term is the newly activated biden 2000. this guy has turned into a negotiating device at the president's hand. if they do try to do something by executive action you will hear heads explode. >
the criticism that the white house is secretive about the drone program. they don't talk about it and almost don't acknowledge it and clear that the president is committed to this and an issue from the left. >> david, as s.e. said, i think the left did not for most or all of president obama's first term really hold him accountable on drones the way maybe you would have expected them to do or tried to with the national security policies under george w. bush. it seem there is's a natural opportunity at least maybe to pursue some of the answers to ask some of questions that weren't asked the last four years in the hearings of john brennan as the cia director. is that something you expect will happen at all? >> i do. >> will there be some aggression of the left there? >> i think there will be. brennan is involved in the program and some of the stories today you are seeing looking and as people start to scour the records. regardless of whether he's confirmed or not, it's part of the discussion. however, i think like i said that obama is committed to john brennan. as his sort of adviser, the president
, in fact, take on their pet pork barrel projects, even though the pentagon has said we don't want those programs. we don't want those airplanes. congress, instead, votes -- goes ahead and votes for it because it means money and votes back home for many members of congress. so i think that ultimately will be the biggest challenge for secretary of defense chuck hagel if, in fact, he is confirmed, tamron. >> you took issue with what first read pointed out, which is the politics which is what i was starting out the conversation with you regarding, the politics of this, when you have general mcchrystal and we'll play him later today on the "today" show this morning talking about a disconnect between the generals and those leaders of the military and the white house particularly in afghanistan. so it's not asking you to delve in to the politics but face it, it is political. >> reporter: well, you know, the trust between the u.s. military leadership and the civilian leadership is always a very delicate balance. you don't find -- and i guess if you want to strictly define the word politics, the
of the commonsense things that everybody fwraes with, including nra members and gun owners, you don't hear any republicans at all talking about coming to the table, and when rush limbaugh made the comment about, you know, it won't be long before you hear moderate republicans talking about how this is hurting them with women, actually you don't hear any moderate republicans saying that. you know, unless some republicans come to the table in the house, it is frightening how little we might be able to do on gun safety. >> bill, let me interject. there are four suburban republican congress mn in the philadelphia area. i wrote an op ed piece for one of our newspapers, and i challenged them to stand up and say are they for us, their constituents, or for the nra? they're going to have to vote. they're going to have to declare themselves. if they declare themselves on the side of the nra, they're finished. they will be defeated in 2014. >> the question is whether or not you can build a coalition big enough of the very small number that is moderate republicans to even get a bill to the floor in the hou
are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little, if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice, and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in your face term. >> reporter: and we should also note that mitch mcconnell, the senate minority leader, the top republican here in the senate, made some softer comments on the other sunday talk shows. he was saying that chuck hagel will get some thorough vetting, will get tough kwequestions, bue was not talking about it in the same stark terms as senator graham. president obama is making this nomination with congress out of town, so there's also time for this nomination to melt away. we'll have to see. >>> i want to take a closer look now at the anti-israel claims against hagel through the eyes of a seasoned diplomat. nicholas burns is a former undersecretary of state. he joins us by phone. good morning, mr. ambassador. >> good morning. >> before we speak, i want to tell people exactly what hagel said that -- those comments that are haunting him today. in one stat
checks and guns carrying near schools or giving them to minors. we don't know what strengthened and stiffened penalties. t there are a lot of loose terms. >> tucker: we don't know anything, other than the mental component would have had an impact. it's hard to see to not see this as a power grab, none of these are related to what americans are upset about. if i give my 16-year-old a shotgun, they have to register, the burden falls on people who haven't committed a crime. >> clayton: you don't have to register the shotgun now. >> alisyn: you don't have to let authorities know. >> tucker: the federal authorities. in new york state perhaps you would, but most states you don't. >> alisyn: as we know the atf has a problem with that, tasked with regulating firearms, has a problem not significanting out which gun is going where, when people give them away, sell them. if it's stolen. atf one of the agencies that called for the national data base. obviously that's controversial. people don't want to be in a data base, they want to have-- >> this came up in the wake of the shootings in au
to par. you also don't just want to just make some kind of announcement without thinking it through. i talked to a senior administration official who said to lead 10,000 troops in afghanistan could cost us $30 billion a year. the president also has to make an economic decision, as well. so, look, if panetta is saying i want it done in weeks and the president is simply saying i'm going to take a few more months, i say take your time because you're dealing with the lives of american troops. >> that's a fair point. of course, the time -- the clock is ticking, the united states says it's going to withdraw in 2014. it's knot just the delay on troop numbers that had us asking questions today. today the president gave a reason for the delay. said, look, i haven't given recommendations yet for general john allen. here's what the president said. >> i'm going to be over the coming weeks getting recommendations from general allen and other commanders on the ground. >> all right a month ago when i spoke with secretary panetta, he agreed general allen was the one responsible but said the options we
's a "full court press." don't worry. i'm not bill press but he's here. he's live. he's in the building. hi bill. >> bill: hey hey hey hey. i have half a voice and one word per hour. >> which is great because i have half a brain. with half of your voice and half my brain we'll get through the show. >> bill: this hour, my word is brandy. >> i'm peter ogborn sitting in for bill press today. the revolving door in washington continues to turn. and cabinet secretary has resigned out of the obama administration. who was it? well tell you in just a few moments. first, we'll go to out to los angeles, our current news update with lisa ferguson. >> hey peter. good morning bill. good morning everyone. more gun debate as vice president joe biden takes on a new round of meetings along with attorney general eric holder. first they'll speak with wildlife and sporting groups at 11:45 this morning. on to gun owner's groups including the nra and representatives from the entertainment industry this evening. kathleen sebelius wills attend some of the meetings. it is a big step for president obama's new gun vio
. >> greg: lies! united states, not the world. >> bob: don't interrupt me. >> greg: you can't do this. global warming is not the united states warning. >> bob: galileo would not be surprised by this. >> bob: you don't get -- >> dana: that is it for "the five." sigh you tomorrow. >> bret: is it common sense to prevent mass shooting or gun control measures? there are signals that the president might not wait for permission from congress to start. this is "special report." good evening. i'm bret baier. what to do about gun violence that left 20 children dead is front and center tonight. vice president biden began his work to find solutions. he hinted that president obama might not wait for congress before taking action. political correspondent carl ram ron. >> they opened the first meeting with victim and gun safety groups and recalled the rampage that killed 20 children. in connecticut last month. >> i don't think anything touched the heart of the american people profoundly, seeing the young children. >> the president promised quick response in wake of the attack and biden said the legi
- in for treasury secretary or does president obama have a fight on his hand? >> i don't know if you would call him a shoe-in. he is going to be touched up a bit by the republicans but he is going to be confirmed. does obama have a fight object his hands? you bet, but the fight is going to be over chuck hagel for secretary of defense. that is going to be a proxy battle between what you might call the know 0-conservatives, the bush ii folks, mccain, lieberman, lindsey graham, and the others and what hagel stands for, john, is non- interventionist foreign policy. we don't go to war unless vital interests are at stake. we put our own country first. i think this is going to be the battle royal in the coming months. >> eleanor. >> nobody is a shoe-in with the republican party that fails to defeat president obama for reelection but still seems determined to make him a failed president but jacob lew is as close to a shoe-in as there can be. the only complaint you hear is that he hasn't spent enough time on wall street, and for a lot of democrats that's actually a positive attribute. so he will be confirme
first and how that's anti-semitic i don't know and that's the issue as far as i can tell regarding the rhetoric of hagel. >> john, another issue of particular of those like me on the left is hagel's comments that he made back in 1998 opposing president clinton's ambassador or nominee to be ambassador calling him openly aggressively gay and recently apologized for the comments and you were really instrumental in getting don't ask don't tell repelled so how do people with an equality for lgbt community and square those comments with supporting hagel's nomination? >> well, we obviously were involved in supporting, you know, a lot of lgbt community, the argument is if you served in iraq and afghanistan and three times why are you kicked out when we're redeployed? i think senator hagel will support the president's policy with lgbt equality and i think that senator hagel did a great job to apologize for it. it wasn't an appropriate statement and something i agree with. when it comes down to the issues of the pentagon that's important like nuclear waste and discretionary spending in the b

in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says
